Added DiffLines:

* [[spoiler:DevilButNoGod]]: In an odd variation, [[spoiler:Jack of Blades is functionally the devil]] but according to the Oracle, neither Skorm nor Avo actually exist and their temples were simply built in area where magic tended towards evil and good respectively.
* DiscOneNuke: Master weapons and platemail can be bought before completing a single quest. The latter will never be replaced barring the expansion and the former will function well for most of the game.
** The legendary pick-hammer can be obtained early just by being evil or eating several baby chicks in front of the right Demon Door.
** The legendary cutlass (which is stronger than all non-legendary one-handed weapons bar the master katana) is found in a Demon Door just before Witch Wood.
** With a little luck, [[InfinityPlusOneSword Skorm's Bow]] the best possible ranged weapon in the game, can be gained before completing a single quest.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeButImpractical: Infernal Wrath and Divine Fury do ridiculous amounts of damage, but only in a small area after a lengthy charge-up. And if you're hit while charging, the spell fizzles out if you don't have Physical Shield active.


Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical:
** Buy mass quantities of goods cheap then sell them right back for a profit. While it can take some time, you can have the 2nd best armor and 2nd best non-legendary one handed weapon before even starting the first quest.
** Likewise two of the most used spells in the game do no damage at all. Assassin's Rush teleports you behind your target (thus getting around enemies that block almost everything) and Physical Shield makes you take no damage so long as you have mana to power (which, given that the amount of experience you get is based on the amount of damage you do vs the amount you take, elevates the spell towards Game Breaker levels).
** The most efficient way to kill a single enemy is almost always to simply hit it with your melee weapon.
** Speaking of weapons, one-handed weapons are generally considered superior to two-handed ones. While they don't do as much damage, they attack much much faster, allowing players to rack up damage quicker. Furthermore, it's generally better to use master weapons with augmentations than legendary ones. Legendary weapons do more damage but they can't be augmented. A master katana with three sharpening augmentations is second only to the Sword of Aeons among one-handed weapons. Keeping two backup weapons with silver and fire augmentations for specialized foes like Balverines or Hobbes can make difficult fights a cakewalk.
** The Frying Pan. It deals pathetic damage but has four augmentation slots, more than any other weapon in the game. A mage with a Frying Pan and Master Bow/Crossbow filled with Mana Augmentations will pretty much never need mana potions again, barring the final boss.

* LostForever: [[spoiler:If you turn in Lady Grey rather than marry her, you can never get through the Demon Door near her home. There is also a Silver Key that can only be reached by fighting Thunder for her favour.]]
** Also, if you give all your Silver Keys to the Demon Door in the Necropolis before you've collected all of them and opened all the treasure chests, you will never be able to open the chests afterwards as there won't be enough Silver Keys left in the world for you to collect.

Added DiffLines:

* NPCRandomEncounterImmunity: Averted. {{Intrepid Merchant}}s travel the forest roads and are frequently beset by bandits and hostile wildlife. Lampshaded in an EscortMission when two traders argue over why they'd bother risking their lives on the trip instead of opening a shop in town.

* BaldOfEvil: Literally. The horns evildoers sprout cause a receding hairline. Averted in the second game, wherein Ghoulish players will still have a full head of hair when they sprout their horns. Some sort of twisted demonic evolution at work?

The game was later [[UpdatedRerelease re-released]] as ''Fable: The Lost Chapters'', which extended the storyline, added new content, and contained an expansive PlayableEpilogue ending to better conclude the game (which is considered canon as of ''VideoGame/FableII''). Another update was later released in February 2014 for Xbox 360, and on PC via Steam in September 2014. Titled ''Fable Anniversary'', the HD remake has the game's visuals rebuilt entirely, a ''Fable II/III''-inspired control scheme, leaderboards and the update pack ''The Lost Chapters''. The ''Anniversary'' trailer can be watched [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnOKkQSNjW8 here]].

* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Unless you took the [[SelfImposedChallenge boast]] to not kill any bandits, the easiest way to sneak past the bandits at the beginning of the Twinblade quest is to simply snipe them with your bow.
